About this artwork

According to Memling's own inscription on the frame this painting was commissioned from him by Brother Jan Floreins who had himself included discreetly in the central panel kneeling in prayer behind a low wall. Deep in pious meditation the sacred events appear before him as in a vision. As was customary with the Flemisch Primitives the biblical story is given a medieval Flemisch setting a picturesque city view in a rolling green landscape. The left wing shows the Birth of Christ while the one on the right features the Presentation in the temple.
